Vekemans wins pole vault with career best

FAYETTEVILLE – Stellar performances by Razorbacks in the Wooo Pig Classic included Lauren Gregory winning the 5,000m in a career best 15 minutes, 34.58 seconds, while Elien Vekemans set a career best of 14 feet, 1 1/4 inches to claim the pole vault at the Randal Tyson Track Center.

“I guess I haven’t raced in December before, probably not since high school,” Gregory noted. “I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew the field would be good. We had a pacer, and it was kind of like what we do in practice. Just hang on and roll and see what you can do. I’m happy with it and I’m happy to PR for sure.”
